G.I. Joe Flashback, an independent film about a key era in the lives of several future Joes, is now funding with under 30 days to go!
We all know the stories– the tale first recounted in Marvel Comics G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #26— of a Vietnam LLRP team consisting of the men who would go on to become Stalker, Storm Shadow, and Snake Eyes. However, do we know the stories that came before those events in which Tommy dropped everything to rescue his friend, cementing the bond between them?
Thanks to G.I. Joe Flashback we just might have the chance to learn more about the entire team– including Wade Collins, Ramon Escobedo, and Dickie Saperstein.
This is going to be more than just a “fan film”. The folks behind G.I. Joe Flashback are bringing in some real talent to not just tell this story but to tell it right. The film is produced by cosplayer extrordinaire “Skinny“, and features a talented and passionate group of fans helping to bring it to light. Names like Bill Nedrow and Paul Panfalone are no strangers to the fan community. Every detail from the story to the score is being supervised with a true reverence to the source material.
If you need any more encouragement, just check out Skinny’s recent interview on Just Another GI Joe Show below:
